Daniel Bauer, PhD
Dr. Bauer's research focuses on the development, evaluation and application of quantitative methods suited to the study of developmental phenomena, especially social development in the domains of aggression, antisocial behavior, and substance use. He has concentrated on identifying the opportunities and limitations of current and newly emerging analytic models, and investigates new ways to overcome these limitations so that the models can be applied to make accurate inferences about developmental theory. In 2009, Dr. Bauer received the APA's award for Distinguished Scientific Early Career Contributions.
